"Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.." probably one of the most famous opening lines. I've seen the movie and have been meaning to start the book for quite some time.
I'm so glad I did; I'm loving it. du Maurier's descriptions _ particularly of the English countryside _ are so vivid and her writing just flows.
It's easy to get lost in the book; it's one that I"m always reluctant to put down.
Our unnamed heroine is just starting to feel a little comfortable at Manderley and finding out more and more about the first Mrs de Winter.
A good one to start the year on :)
